Wick Celebrates Black History Month

Wick Elementary’s annual Black History Month program was held on Friday, February 24, 2017. This year in addition to the assembly, classes also welcomed parents into their rooms with presentations that connected various aspects of Black History to Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics (S.T.E.A.M.) components. Following the assembly and class presentations, parents and students enjoyed a Soul Food Luncheon in the gymnasium.

Dinner with Dads

On Friday, October 7, 2016 Wick Elementary hosted “Dinner with Dads” in an effort to get fathers and father-figures to participate in the school’s Watch DOGS (Dads Of Great Students) program. The Watch DOGS program is a school-based, father involvement initiative that works to support education and safety in the school. Watch DOGS include fathers, grandfathers, step-fathers, uncles, and other father figures who volunteer to serve at least one day per school year in a variety of school day activities.

Muffins for Moms

The Wick School community held a breakfast on Friday, September 23 to recognize our students’ mothers. Students along with their moms enjoyed muffins, fruits and beverages before the school day began. This annual event at Wick allows an opportunity for a positive connection between parents and the school shortly after the beginning of each school year. In addition, this morning gave moms the chance to socialize with one another and staff members.

Her class is using the Tower Garden, a high tech aeroponic growing system that is capable of growing up to 20 herbs, vegetables, fruits and flowers simultaneously. The Tower Garden grows plants with only water and nutrients rather than dirt. Students in Ms. Evitts class are assigned weekly responsibilities that include checking water and pH levels, and adding nutrients.
